This is the title of a book that really challenged me when I was stuck. The book was ok, but the TITLE of the book…the question…now that is what I really think the Lord used to UNSTICK me!
So I ask you…
“What’s REALLY holding you back?”
How about if you right now, in this moment, today…toss it aside? Bring down the walls? Blow a hole in the barricades?
Hebrews 12:1-4 says:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.
